us an email that does not include some sort of samples of your work, we
will instantly throw it in the trash. Please don't waste your time or ours.

- IF YOU ARE STILL LEARNING PHOTOSHOP OR ILLUSTRATOR, DON'T
KNOW THE MEANING OF "Clipping Paths", MAKING PRETTY GREEN AND
RED CIRCLES WITH HAND DRAWN SMILEY FACES, THIS IS NOT THE JOB FOR
YOU. We are looking for a higher caliber designer/illustrator that can
compliment our existing portfolio. We won't hold your hand and we don't
want to explain why the "Magic Wand" isn't really all that magical.

- PLEASE PUT IN YOUR SUBJECT LINE, "Hi Soup, I want the job!". Otherwise,
your submission will probably go into our junk folder.

- This position is for an in-house designer.

SIA 2012

Soup Goes SIA

We sent Dan on a quick and dirty trip to Denver, CO to visit some of our clients and see what's new at the Snowsports Industries America 2012 Tradeshow. As always, it's fun to see what each manufacturer is coming out with and how they are shaping the snowsports industry. By far the snowsports push the limits of art and design in their products.
